Haiti’s Sham Electoral Process

September 4th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Haiti’s only legitimate government in over 200 years was under Jean-Bertrand Aristide (1991, 1994 - 1996, and 2001 - 2004) - twice ousted by US imperial arrogance, a true populist leader serving all Haitians equitably, dedicated to social justice.

In 2011, Washington rigged Haiti’s electoral process to install widely despised Duvalierist/anti-populist Michel (Sweet Mickey) Martelly as president. He governs extrajudicially - by decree since parliament was dissolved in January, in violation of Haiti’s constitution. Haiti hasn’t had elections in over four years. When held they’re farcical - rigged to assure US-approved candidates win. More on this below.

Guatemalan President Resigns: Faces Corruption Charges

September 4th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Following an attorney general arrest warrant against him, Otto Perez Molina resigned. His spokesman Jorge Ortega said he submitted his resignation at midnight Wednesday local time - “to maintain the institution of the presidency and resolve on his own the legal proceedings leveled against him.”

They’re unrelated to his sordid past - when known as “Major Tito” for involvement in genocidal slaughter of indigenous Ixil Indians in 1982.

Journalist Allan Nairn explained he was one of the US-backed generals responsible for “massacres that devastated the Mayan population of the northwest highlands.”

Whatever happens, Washington will win in Syria, because the United States has not one, but two different policies with regard to this country. Either there will be peace, and President Obama will be praised for having successfully negotiated with Iran ; or else the Syrian Arab Republic will be destroyed and occupied by NATO, and a few US generals and NATO will be praised for having brought an end to the bloodbath. Here, Thierry Meyssan reveals the underside of this double policy, in particular the plot that was hatched by the NATO Deputy Secretary General for Political Affairs. (Image: Gen. John R. Allen - Resolute Support Media))

The application of the agreement reached between Washington and Teheran, on the 14th July, 2015, depends mainly on President Obama’s capacity to convince his fellow-citizens, and particularly the Congress of his own administration, to accept it. Here, however, he will be faced with two major obstacles.

New Israeli Police State Measure

September 4th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Israel is a racist police state - run by criminal thugs. Numerous earlier measures violated the letter and spirit of fundamental international humanitarian laws.

Justice Minister Ayelet (“little snakes”) Shaked heads the Israeli Legislation Ministerial Committee. It drafted the new police state measure - solely targeting Palestinians despite claims otherwise.

It broadens the definition of terrorism, related activities and terrorist organizations - to more severely brutalize Palestinians than already, for political reasons, not criminality. It mandates longer prison terms and stiffer conditions for releasing detainees. Israel’s definition of “terrorism” is any Palestinian protesting for international law guaranteed rights everyone deserves.

The USA Needs Disruptive President Trump

September 4th, 2015

Joel S. Hirschhorn

I keep imagining the White House with a big, really big neon sign TRUMP across the top of the roof.

Count me as fully supporting the candidacy of Donald Big Mouth Trump. Why? Because for a long time we have had a delusional democracy, the product of a political system destroyed by both major political parties and the moneyed interests supporting both of them. Trump is the only possible president capable of productively disrupting this fake democracy, actually a plutocracy. It is more rational to fear whatever conventional Democrat or Republican won the presidency than to fear Trump. More of the same is far more frightening than nothing like this before. Moreover, there are sufficient constitutional checks from the other two branches of the federal government to curb fears of nutty actions by President Trump.

Venezuela Reveals New Evidence Against Opposition Leader Leopoldo Lopez

September 4th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Lopez is a US-funded anti-Bolivarian fascist politician. In January 2014, he and defrocked former National Assembly member Maria Corina Machado launched a La Salida (the Exit) campaign, openly calling for replacing Venezuela’s government.

Street violence followed for months. Dozens died, many others injured and arrested. February 2014, Lopez was detained.

At the time, prosecutors held him responsible for murder, terrorism, conspiracy, incitement to crime, setting fire to a public building, damaging public property, public intimidation, and inflicting serious injuries.

Western Leaders Snub China’s WW II Victory Day Commemoration

September 4th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

No two nations sacrificed more to defeat the scourge of Nazi and imperial Japanese fascism that Russia and China.

No one knows for sure how many from both countries perished. Estimates of Russian deaths ranged from 26 - 40 million.

From Japan’s invasion and occupation of Manchuria in 1931 to WW II’s end in 1945, 30 million or more Chinese died. Many more in both countries suffered serious injuries. Large parts of their land mass were devastated. Without Sino/Russian contributions to the war effort, Hitler and imperial Japan might have prevailed. War didn’t touch US soil. Americans old enough to remember recall minor inconveniences only - including rationing goods needed for the war effort.
